I'm Back!

At least I hope I'm back. It's been a busy summer and, yet, I can't say that I've really accomplished a whole lot. Spent time with the kids together and separately; visited Ashley and her new home; saw friends and my sister in Fresno; and now we're getting ready to send Joseph off to school...for the third time.

I wish I had the organization and discipline of my good friend, Sandi Smith. Don't know how she does it but she manages to keep up with, not only her website, Bearly Sane, but also with two blogs: Blog of a Bear Nut and Fantasy and Fancy, the TBACA site, organizing and creating the wonderful venues of several online shows each year...and she still manages to find time make bears. My mid-year resolution is to be more like Sandi in productivity and discipline. Unfortunately, I cannot duplicate her creativity and imagination.

Marlys...you have plenty of creativity and imagination...you just need to explore it.
You have all your family to look after, so it's only natural you would have less time...mine have all flown the nest!
Take care of yourself my dear friend and just enjoy being you!
Hugs,
Sandi

Glad to see you back, Marlys!
And do not feel guilty about not managing to do more than you already do! Just enjoy time with your family : nothing is more precious. The rest can wait. So take it easy!
Lots of hugs,
Sophie.

Sophie, I don't run into you much anymore. Are you on Facebook?

Hugs, Marlys
